The Boy – Trailer

William Brent Bell’s The Boy is one of the first movies released by STX Entertainment, a new studio launched in 2014.

It reminds me vaguely of two movies. The first is 1973’s Arnold, which revolved around a woman marrying a corpse–not Rupert Murdoch, though I can understand the confusion.

The second is Gremlins, especially when the sitter is left with a list of things she needs to do in reference to her charge.

Which is a bit problematic when you consider that the boy, who goes by Brahms, is dead and the caretaker was hired to keep watch over a doll that was made in his image.

It sounds bat-shite crazy, and the trailer really sells the creepiness of the situation (it also stars Rupert Evans, who you’ve probably not seen since Hellboy) which I am not at all sure the movie can live up to.

It can go either way, though the trailer?  I like.
